Sep 7, 1813, the United States gets its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812. Wilson (1766-1854) stamped the barrels with “U.S.” for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as “Uncle Sam’s.” The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam eventually gained widespread acceptance as the nickname for the U.S. federal government.

In the late 1860s and 1870s, political cartoonist Thomas Nast (1840-1902) began popularizing the image of Uncle Sam. Nast continued to evolve the image, eventually giving Sam the white beard and stars-and-stripes suit that are associated with the character today. The German-born Nast was also credited with creating the donkey as a symbol for the Democratic Party and the elephant as a symbol for the Republicans…

University professor fired for brazenly racist tweets

zandria-robinson mk

Zandria Robinson, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Memphis, has been fired by the school for a series of tweets that have to be read to be believed.

Washington Times:

The professor first raised ire when she wrote Wednesday to her 2,820 followers that the Confederate flag is “more than a symbol of white racial superiority. It is the ultimate symbol of white heteropatriarchal capitalism.”

“The flag thus is a direct symbol of race, class, gender, & sexuality oppression. We need a more nuanced intersectional reading of the thing,” Ms. Robinson added. “This isn’t to say that the American flag does not represent such things, but the confederate flag only represents those things for whites.

“I’ve been working w teens this summer & it has been a surreal experience talking to them (& the 12-yr-old at home) about being under attack,” she tweeted Friday. “Like, this is a daily part of our lives. We don’t accept it. We *don’t*. But we alive now. We push back. We write. We laugh. We twerk. Hard.

“Whiteness is most certainly and inevitably terror,” she added.

Ms. Robinson also retweeted a message that stated: “[W]hite supremacy lives with or without the confederate flag. [Expletive] the USA flag stands for the same thing as the confederate flag.”

“White folks think that if they are nice to you they are above a critique of whiteness, white supremacy, or structural racism. #cueviolins,” Ms. Robinson wrote Monday.

“I’m not racist. I have a white friend,” she joked after Twitter users accused her of racism.

Ms. Robinson describes herself on her Twitter profile as a “Dirty South black feminist sociologist,” “Some babies’ mama,” and “Negressdamus.”

Campus Reform reports that the assistant professor threatened in a Facebook post earlier this year that she would “come for” any white student who believed black students were given preferential treatment when applying to graduate schools. She has since removed public access to her Facebook account.

The professor said earlier this month that she expects “death and rape threats” because, “those are the ultimate expressions of love from conservative whites these day.”

Anyone who uses the phrase “white heteropatriarchal capitalism” is either parodying academic-speak or completely delusional.

I’m sure just about every college has a Zandria Robinson polluting the minds of young people with racialist nonsense like this.  Their hate is tolerated because of “academic freedom.”  It’s good to see the University of Memphis take quick and decisive action in firing the professor.

Stone Mountain’s Confederate flags will still fly!

stone-mountain

The shooting deaths of nine black worshippers by a suspected white supremacist in Charleston has shone a spotlight on symbols of the Confederacy in Georgia and across the South. State Rep. LaDawn Jones, D-Atlanta, called on residents “who do not tolerate hate of any kind” to boycott the park until the flags come down.

The array of Confederate flags flying at Stone Mountain, that most obvious of Georgia Confederate memorials, will continue to fly despite the threat of a boycott.

Bill Stephens, who heads the Stone Mountain Memorial Association, said a few days ago that the park’s operators were weighing different options for the three Confederate States of America banners and the Rebel war emblem that fly alongside Old Glory.

He reports today that the park’s position has hardened since then.

Said Stephens:

“Stone Mountain is preserved by state law as a Confederate memorial.  The law that changed the flag to our current state flag also expressly prohibited changes at Stone Mountain Park. Some on both sides of these issues have said that these Confederate symbols belong in a museum.  Here in Georgia, Stone Mountain Park serves that purpose.”

State law has a very clear mandate for Stone Mountain’s state-owned memorial. “The Stone Mountain Memorial Association shall continue the practice of stocking, restocking, and sales of Confederate memorabilia.” Another section says that the site should be “preserved and protected for all time as a tribute to the bravery and heroism of the citizens of this state who suffered and died in their cause.”

Harvard Medical and MIT student Stephen Allsop told Boston.com that he was part of a group of demonstrators that left the flag on the memorial after a Confederate flag-burning ceremony on Sunday evening.

Allsop said he and five others gathered at the memorial at 7 p.m., where they burned two Confederate flags as a way to show “solidarity with people who live in states like South Carolina” where the flag remains a “blatant issue.”

Leaked Benghazi Docs Directly Implicate Obama in cover-up

It was all his fault.And don't forget Clinton either!

It was his fault.And don’t forget Clinton either!

The week that will supposedly define President Obama’s legacy just got a splash of cold water thrown on it. New documents have surfaced showing that President Obama and his officials were directly involved in the “blame the video” narrative following the terrorist attack in Benghazi in 2012

The documents, released by a Freedom of Information Act Request, show that top Obama officials were directly involved in determining how to mislead the American people about the reason behind the terrorist attack that took the lives of 4 Americans.

As we all know, not much happens involving the White House that doesn’t have the approval of the president. At some level, President Obama was involved in the construction of this narrative, even if his name isn’t on ‘from’ line of an email, and now we have the documents that show that.

Judicial Watch’s coverage of the cover up reveals some fascinating information:

“A September 11, 2012, email sent at 6:21 p.m. by State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland to Meehan [Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the National Security Council], Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, and Clinton’s personal aide Jacob Sullivan shows that the State Department deferred to the White House on the official response to the Benghazi attack.  Referencing pending press statements by Barack Obama and Clinton, Nuland wrote: ‘We are holding for Rhodes [then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser] clearance. BMM [Meehan], pls advise asap.’

While standing over their dead bodies and beside members of the victims families,Obama abd Clinton knowingly and willfully lied about what caused these brave men's death.It is immoral and a disgrace!

While standing over their dead bodies and beside members of the victims families,Obama abd Clinton knowingly and willfully lied about what caused these brave men’s death.It is a disgrace!

“Meehan responded three minutes later, at 6:24 p.m.: ‘Ben is good with these and is on with Jake now too.’”

This clearly indicates that the White House was calling all of the shots on what information went to the public, including the false narrative about Muslim unrest over a Youtube video.

Additionally, an email sent by Rashad Hussain, the Obama administration’s special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), on September 12th stresses the need to blame the attack on a film.

It states, “I am sure you are considering putting a statement on the film and the related violence.  In addition to the condemnation of the disgusting depictions, it will be important to emphasize the need to respond in a way that is consistent with Islamic principles, i.e. not engaging in violence and taking innocent life …”

Yes, by all means, let’s make sure to not offend the people who just butchered American citizens.

Another email, sent on September 14th by Ben Rhodes to prep former Ambassador Susan Rice stated, ” ‘Goal’: To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.” (H/T Judicial Watch)

That doesn’t sound fishy at all…

This of course falls on top of the mountain of evidence that President Obama and his administration knew right away that this wasn’t a protest gone wrong, this was a terrorist attack.

This is absolutely disgusting. It’s time for Republican leadership in Congress to take measures to impeach Obama, or hold him accountable in some way.

Supreme Court declines to decide on states’ request for proof of voter citizenship

The Supreme Court has declined to hear a case allowing states to require proof of citizenship for those applying to vote in federal elections, effectively upholding a lower court ruling against Kansas and Arizona.

Those states wanted the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to change its registration requirements to include proof of citizenship for those applying to vote in federal elections, as the states require for those using their state forms.

By not taking the case, the Supreme Court leaves in place a November 2014 ruling from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the states cannot require the documentation for applicants using the so-called “federal form.”

Voting rights advocates hailed the court’s decision to not take up the case, Kobach v. United States Election Assistance Commission. Currently, the federal agency’s form only requires applicants swear eligibility under penalty of perjury.

“This is a very big deal,” Rick Hasen, a University of California Irvine Law professor, wrote on his election law blog. “Kobach had the potential to shift more power away from the federal government in administering elections toward the states.”

The Supreme Court ruled in 2013 that Arizona could not require those using the federal form to provide proof of citizenship.

“Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” said Shirley Sandelands of the League of Women Voters, one of the voting rights groups that urged the court to not hear the appeal.

The Brennan Center for Justice and several law firms that represented the group praised the Supreme Court in a joint statement for “securing a critical victory to strengthen the right to vote in federal elections in Arizona and Kansas and reaffirming the important role Congress plays in preserving a fair voter registration process across the country.”

“The Supreme Court decision not to review was not particularly surprising given the fact that there was no circuit split yet,” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who filed the joint appeal to the federal appellate court decision with Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan, said in an interview with Roll Call

Typically, Kobach told the newspaper, “the Supreme Court favors reviewing decisions where one circuit has gone one way and another circuit has gone another way. It appears that the Supreme Court is waiting for another circuit to weigh in.”

Kobach expects the 11th circuit with jurisdiction over the two states to eventually weigh in.
